KATHMANDU: Russia has reported 10,633 new coronavirus infection cases in the past 24 hours, the highest daily rise since the outbreak began in the country.

The increase brings Russia’s total number of coronavirus cases to 134,687, the seventh highest tally in the world.

But Russia’s mortality rate remains low relatively to other countries, such as the US, Italy and Spain.

On Sunday, a further 58 coronavirus-related deaths were recorded, taking the total to 1,280 in Russia.

Moscow’s mayor Sergei Sobyanin on Saturday cautioned against complacency, saying the capital was not past the peak of its coronavirus epidemic.

The mayor said around 2% of residents in the city – around 250,000 people – had tested positive for coronavirus. On Sunday, Moscow’s total number of cases jumped by 5,948 to a total of 68,606.

A strict lockdown has been imposed in Moscow, where its 12 million residents have been ordered to stay at home with few exceptions.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said situation remains “very serious”, warning Russians to brace for a “grueling phase of the pandemic” in the weeks ahead.

Earlier in the week Russian Prime Minister, Mikhail Mishustin, confirmed he had been diagnosed with Covid-19, the first senior minister in the country to do so.

Currently, 116, 768 people are undergoing treatment at various hospitals in the country, of which 2, 300 are critical. Meanwhile, 16, 639 have recovered after treatment.
